Actually. they chopped the colonies up. An old map I saw from the 1600s show the NY/PA border going along the Delaware River to 42° North, then going west to the Pacific Ocean. That means Oregon used to be in NY, and Northern Cali was in PA. I don't remember the whole map, but think all the colonies outside of New England had borders that extended straight to the Pacific coastline.
Imagine how many NC counties there would be to search today, if it still included parts of TN, AR
, OK, TX, NM, AZ, and CA
This also meant that the future site of Jack Trice Stadium was in NY.
It lies only one mile north of PA border.
